Evaluation of the Suitability of
Distributed Interactive Videoconferencing for use in Higher Education
2 Method for evaluation
A four part methodology was adopted:
- structured interviews with speakers at the Brussels site,
- questionnaires administered to participants at four of the five main sites,
- experimenter observation at the Brussels site (with additional comments from an observer at the Madrid site),
- unstructured evaluative comments from various other attendees and speakers, both during and after the event.
Structured interviews were chosen in order to extract a high relevance of information from the speakers, and to be able to follow up further issues in required depth. These were all conducted by the experimenter. Questionnaires were used to get feedback from participants. This approach was taken due to the distributed nature of the event and the wish to get feedback from the different sites involved. These were administered by a different person identified at each site.
